I have just purchased this camellia from my local Walmart and it has very large beautiful flowers. I have planted it in a partial shade location and I hope it does fine The tag that was on the container stated that it can take cold down to 10 degrees and that will be a good thing also as we sometimes have some very cold weather. I have 8 other varieties of Camellia around my yard and all have been put in partial shade and are doing very well and I get lots of very pretty flowers during the Winter time.

Lady Vansittart is an old variety that was imported from Japan back in 1887. Her variable white blooms can have various amounts & thickness of pink stripes. Sometimes the pink takes over the entire flower - this sport is called 'Lady Vansittart Pink' or 'Lady Vansittart Red'. My plant has both white and pink variations of blooms. I am never certain what her blooms will look like before they open. A very pretty sport of her is 'Yours Truly'.
